Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";a fever."; The Lucan combination with συνέχεσθαι (Luke 4:38, Acts 28:8) is paralleled in P Oxy VI. 896.33 (A.D. 316) ὁρ ̣ῶμ ̣ε ̣[ν αὐτὸ ]ν ̣ το [ῦτ ]ον κ ̣λ ̣ε ̣[ινή ]ρ ̣η ̣ν ὄντα πυραι (= ε)τίοις. . . συνεχ ̣[όμενον, ";we saw the man himself lying on a bed seized with a slight . . . fever"; (Edd.) : note the technical plur. on which Hobart (p. 52) comments.

Πυρετός in the sing, is found in the heathen charm, BGU III. 956 (iii/A.D.), invoking protection ἀπὸ πα [ν ]τὸς ῥίγου <ς > καὶ πυρετοῦ, cf. P Oxy VI. 924.6 (iv/A.D.), ib.
